Trial activation of Cubase 12 not work on macOS 12.4 (mac mini 2018)


What does the message say, please?

Make sure, you have the latest version of the Steinberg Activation Manager and eLCC, please.

The message says “No valid license found, aborting the application.”

The SAM says that the trial is activated until 2022-07-15.

Both the SAM and the SDM are the latest.

Also, this issue appears to be exactly the same as the one in this thread:


Try to uninstall Steinberg Activation Manager and install it again, please. Make sure, you install it as administrator. Install also the latest eLCC version, please.


Although these two are already the latest ones installed by the Steinberg Download Assistant, I manually downloaded and reinstalled the SAM. The reinstallation of the SAM solved this issue.

Thanks for your assistance.
